We enjoyed a lovely unplanned family meal there. We were originally planning on eating a light snack but after walking around the quay we spotted the Pizza Express and decided a light snack was not going to happen tonight. We managed to get a table despite it being a busy Friday night and enjoyed a lovely meal with wine. The... More

Sadly, I can do no more than echo the sentiments of many of the other reviewers. Location is fine. Pizza Express is a standard menu so food wise you know what you are get, and the food, when we got it, was fine. However, a Sunday evening visit was characterised by slow and completely random service. Ages to wait for... More

We've been to a few Pizza Expresses and had the tuna nicoise in each of them. This was our worst experience of the chain. The waiter was indifferent to his customers and never asked if we wanted anything else. When we complained at the end of the meal - the first time he'd asked if everything was all right -... More

We only really went as we had 2 free main course vouchers but we were seen straight away and sat at a good table. The service was good and the resturant team were good. It is a little pricy for what you get, especially drinks. Nice location but a bit noisy

What a difference the right quota of staff makes! Last time we visited, the restaurant was severely unstaffed. This time we had an excellent waitress (who was professionally training a new recruit) and the service and food quality couldn't be faulted. We were seated in the narrow end part of the restaurant which as others have said is a little... More

Restaurant is a strange shape - we were sat in the long corridor section. At least it allows a view over the waterfront. We had their starter board - the NewClassic Italian Antipasto - to share. That was really good. We then enjoyed thin base pizza with a salad in the middle. The were good too!

We had booked for 7, turned up as a 6, waited 10mins for manager to cobble together a series of tiny tables lined up right against a window so making it impossible to talk between us. We decided to wait for a table of 6 to leave and were offered no drinks or menus while waiting. Service was very slow,... More

My wife and I visited here on a 2 for 1 taste card deal as we haven't been in years and thought we'd give it a go again. The restaurant has a really nice location by the water front but its a bit of a strange layout with twists and turns and the noise really carries from other tables and... More

Painfull is about the only adjective i can use. Food was good, as normal, but the service was just dire. Mistakes on the order mixed with glacial service made the experience border on comical. It would seem from the other guests' behaviour that my sentiments are not unique. In mitigation this is not the norm.
